So Long, Donald Sterling! The Los Angeles Clippers Have Been Sold To Steve Ballmer!

| Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersBusiness BlitzBasketballNBA

The Los Angeles Clippers have been SOLD

Goodbye forever, awful Donald Sterling! There’s a new owner in town and he’s totally NOT a racist!

Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has officially bought the Los Angeles Clippers, after the sale was held up in court for awhile by Sterling.

The pricetag was steep though, at $2 billion! Basically, he made an offer that they couldn’t refuse!

However, the decision to allow the sale is a tentative ruling by the judge, who will need to issue a final order, and the NBA’s board of governors needs to vote to approve the sale as well.

But from the looks of everything, it’s going to be a-okay!

There’s also the issue of moving the Clippers now. Previously, Ballmer said that Seattle deserves to have a team, but in light of actually getting the Clippers, he’s reiterated that he has no plans to move them!

So, congratulations Clippers fans! Your former sucky owner is gone!

Robin Williams Did Everything For His Kids - He Even Prepared Them For Life Without Him

robin williams trust fund kids money matters

Unlike Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Williams found it important to set up a trust fund for his kids, whether he was alive or not.

But he also worried that they may not have been mature enough at 21 years old to handle getting a large sum of money, so he broke it up!

In 2009, Robin decided that at 21 years old, each of his three children — Zachary, 31, Zelda, 25, and Cody, 22 — would get 1/3 of their money on their 21st birthday. Then, at 25 the kids got half of the remaining money, and at 30 years old, they got the rest.

So, at least they’ll be taken care of.

As for the rest of Robin’s cash, it’s expected that his wife Susan Schneider will get a lot of it, but it not clear how much that will be.

In 2013, the comedian revealed that because of his two expensive divorces, he was possibly going to have to declare bankruptcy, even though he was valued at $130 million in 2012.

Really though, in the wake of such a sudden and tragic loss, money is probably the last thing on his family’s minds. But it’s good to know that the kids’ dad took care of them.

At one point during the meal, Miranda took her four-month-old baby into the bathroom but there was no changing table.

Instead of shuffling her whole family back into their minivan, she figured she could just change the baby's diaper real quick at the table.

THIS is the life!

Abigail Breslin turned 16 years old while shooting Ender’s Game back in 2012, and she got a big present in the form of a paycheck!
